East Asian Languages & Cultures

The Department of East Asian Languages & Cultures offers an exciting range of courses. We offer a four-year sequence of courses in Chinese and Japanese languages as well as other coursework in literature, film, and culture.


Consider a major in Chinese or Japanese language and culture, a minor in Chinese or Japanese language and culture, or an Interdisciplinary Minor in East Asian Studies to complement your academic and career plans. Talk to your adviser about how proficiency in an East Asian language can become an important component of your educational plan, or contact one of us in East Asian Languages and Cultures to find out more about study opportunities.

The prompt wasn't interesting at all: "Come up with a situation to use honorific language." But JPN201 students came up with many creative ideas for their skits. Enjoy Adrian & Binzi's "King and Princess," and "Life in Osaka" by Morgan, Clarissa, & Nick. Morgan and Nick will be studying in Osaka this summer, and we hope they'll enjoy the real karaoke without losing their voice!
